Habitual Traffic Violations: Understanding The Harsh Consequences

"Habitual traffic violator" (HTV) is not a label you want on your driving record. Indiana law imposes severe penalties for habitual traffic offenders. You could face a suspension of your driver's license lasting five or 10 years. What's more, if you get caught driving after your license has been suspended due to habitual traffic violations, you could face felony charges and lifetime loss of driving privileges. No other traffic offenses carry such harsh punishments.

There are many ways to run afoul of Indiana's habitual traffic violation laws. Certain combinations of repeated or major moving violations — such as driving under the influence or driving with a revoked license — can result in an HTV designation. You should always consult with a skilled traffic defense lawyer whenever facing major or repeat traffic violations.
